The IT field grew dramatically since 2008 (recession years). I left the Army and found an IT job in 2 days. Maybe the jobs won't be there in rural areas but if you live anywhere near a decent size metropolitan area, you can easily find opportunities. The only downfall you have is experience. I don't have any degrees or certifications, but I have five years of experience (thanks to the military). I wouldn't rain on this guy's parade only because of your hardships.
